Samsung is making its S Health app available to all Android users. The proprietary fitness and activity tracking application used to be exclusive only to Galaxy devices but now you can download it on Android devices running on Android 4.4 KitKat and above.
The move appears to be part of its preparation for the Gear S2 smart watch which this time could work on any Android smart phones. As comparison, the current Samsung Gear watches including the Gear S, Gear 2 and Gear Fit are only supported on Galaxy smart phones.
In terms of features, the app has the same goal and activity tracking as the native S Health app on Samsung smart phones. However there’s no mention if the other advance features including heart rate, stress level and oxygen saturation tracker are compatible with existing smart watches that has a heart rate sensor built-in. If you’re interested, you can download S Health on the Google Play.
